“Ogun state was not known for this in the past. Education is Ogun’s pride. Ogun state always set pace and that should be sustained,” Adubi lamented.
In the statement, the media expert commended the bravery nature of KSSS Alumni Association for keeping the public abreast on the conditions of schools in the state.
